My name in print
I went to the New Genre release party on Saturday (hmm, they haven't updated their Web site in six months). The highlight of the evening was seeing the magazine with my name in it. Well, perhaps a little better was one of the editors telling me that he thought this issue wasn't going to have any errors since I had done such a good job helping them find stuff. So, I got my free copy and bought some more to pass out to family and such. I read one of the stories out loud Sunday night, and, while I didn't notice any errors, I did notice places where I might have questioned something that I might not have questioned back when I last looked at these stories. So, I think my copyediting class has given me a better perspective on these things, which is good to realize.

I think there are some good stories in there, so I have no qualms about recommending it. The Web site lists places you can pick it up, like Pandemonium. You could also contact the editors and probably arrange to pick up a copy at their place in Davis Square.

Role playing last night was the first time all four of us got together and stayed together for most of the evening. It's nice that the preliminary stuff is all done with. Of course, there was a lot of information dumping last night, each pair having lots of interesting information that the other pair didn't. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Going to see a play tonight with magid at Brandeis. Except for that awful Russian one, I've enjoyed all of the plays I've seen at Brandeis, so I'm expecting good things from this one.

I saw a man getting on the T this morning. In one hand, he held a bag of paper cups, maybe 100. In the other hand, he held a gallon of Mr. Clean. I almost asked him what he planned on dong with those.

Congrats on being a published editor, as it were (other than textbook stuff).

Thanks. Although, I'm listed there as "intern", along with two other people. I wonder if I should see about getting some sort of letter out of the editors, saying what I did and stuff. Of cours,e I can always just do that at some later point if it becomes necessary for some kind of recommendation or something. Hmm, that reminds me, I need to update my resume. And it's looking to be another slow Compendium month, so maybe I'll put the New Genre thing in there.

Intern, etc.

I noticed you were an "intern." Do the other people who are interns do the same sorts of things, or do they just lump a couple of different things together under the title of intern?
And I can't imagine either of the guys having a problem with signing some sort of letter describing what you did.

I had the impression it wasn't yet a slow Compendium month, with the poetry you've done, also cooking and the Perl article, and I assume there's other stuff, too.

Re: Intern, etc.

The other people did other things, not what I did. I did get first mention, though. I didn't check if my name is alphabetically first, though.

The aritcle has so far only been last month, but I do hope to hear back from them sometime this month again.

What cooking have I done this month? I don't remember any . . .

Re: Cooking

Maybe I'm just thinking of end-of-last-month cooking....

I thought you revised your article, in that you submitted code for it.

What about your finding interesting double-u words, etc.?

I hear there are more layoffs in the planning...
